Wake Your Brain

7th and 8th graders taking the STAAR on Tuesday April 9th, and 8th graders only on Wednesday April 10th, we will be having "Wake Your Brain" out on the track. You can come out to the track starting at 7:45 walk to get your brain awake and ready to work before you go and tackle the STAAR test. Hope to see you there!

Spring Pictures

Spring Pictures will be taken on Thursday, April 18th. 8th grade pictures will be taken through ILA, and 6th and 7th graders will go through Social Studies.

Frisco ISD Family Wellness Festival

The Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is hosting the first-ever, Frisco ISD Family Wellness Festival. The event will be on Saturday, April 13 from 10am-1pm at Independence HS. This is a free event for students, parents, and employees. The goal is to promote the Whole Child through a family event that raises awareness to vendors in the community that can support all parts of the whole child. Students and families will have the opportunity to run/walk laps for their elementary PE programs, participate in live fitness demos, and complete a Passport to Wellness to be entered in door prizes

Nurse's Corner


Attention 6th Grade Parents:

Over the next several weeks, Nurse Thornton will be going through shot records and if any immunization is found to be missing, this letter will be mailed home. You can email, fax or drop off an updated copy of your student’s shot record to the school at any time. The updated shot record is not due until schedule pickup in the fall. Please note that your student will not be able to pick up their fall schedule without an updated shot record on file and your student will not be allowed to attend school without an updated shot record on file.

Please let Nurse Thornton know if you have any questions at thorntok@friscoisd.org or 469-633-4608. Her fax number is 469-633-4628.



Flu Notification:

Parents, please let the school know if your student has been diagnosed with the flu and what type. You can email the data clerk peterssons@friscoisd.org or the nurse thorntok@friscoisd.org with the information. Please make sure the doctor’s note states all dates your student has missed or will miss. The doctor’s office can also fax the note to 469-633-4650.
